‘The Real Story’ Interview Series isn’t just an interview. It’s an experience. Join me as I explore the lives and stories of influential people in many different industries. I believe that everyone has an amazing story to share; full of ups, downs, twists and turns. And I know that you will feel exactly the same way, after listening to these interviews!
Colin Wright is one of those really cool people. Really cool. Once you check out his website, you’ll definitely see why. From being a designer, to traveling to a new country every 4 months based on the votes of his blog readers, to being a minimalist, to publishing a book packed with his personal life stories and adventures, Colin Wright is a man worth knowing, and he has a blog that is worth reading. I really enjoyed our interview, and I hope you enjoy it as well!
Here are some of the things that Colin shared in our interview:
*How ‘Magic: The Gathering’, a popular card game, propelled Colin into the role of leadership
*How Colin learned from an “Epic” Failure, and why you need to fail in order to succeed in business/life
*Colin’s Circadian 3 Experiment (1 short story, 1 photograph, 1 illustration each day for a year), and how it gave him an invaluable means of self-expression
*Colin’s case for adopting ‘extreme lifestyle experiments’ as a way of life
*How always carrying around a camera with you can completely change your view on life
*How minimalism can free you to focus on the most important things in life, and help you learn about yourself as a person
*The case against materialism
*Why Colin turned down a lucrative corporate opportunity in order to travel the world
*Colin’s thoughts on happiness, and why he chooses it over comfort
*And much more!
Colin Wright can be found at his blog, Exile Lifestyle. Buy his latest book for only $2.99, My Exile Lifestyle. I bought it, and it comes highly recommended. It’s not a personal development advice book, but more of a travel memoir. Whatever category you place it in, it’s a great read.
